Adrian, I got in touch with the guy, Kow Atta-Mensah, who helped the MIT woman build a pseudo-videoblogging tool. http://www.audiovisceral.net/facts/this.html He said they built it a couple years ago. The only thing they didnt do was give it an FTP function. He said we could possibly get the code for it. would anyone be interested in figuring it out if we could get the code? "im sad to tell you that i haven't made an update to that software in almost a couple of years. it was an undergraduate research project i was helping with back at MIT. i recently graduated and left the institute. i am not sure, but aisling might have had someone take over my role. you can reach her at aisling@.... just tell her i pointed you to her. sadly, i dont even have my old source, but if she does i believe she would be willing to give it to you. sort of messy, but someone java savvy should be able to figure it out. if you have any questions, i'd be glad to answer them." "i dont believe i ever finished that part(FTP)... but there are lots of open source java ftp clients (and servers) available so making the addition is pretty simple. the recording capability i built in was fast for the time (for java anyways) and im sure newer versions of the quicktime and jmf apis have been released which will make an immediate speed increase." -- Jay Dedman Manhattan Neighborhood Network 537 West 59th (between 10th and 11th Ave) NY NY 10019 http://www.mnn.org 212 757 2670
